Following the success of Brighton Through Time, this book provides further insight into the illustrious history of not only Brighton itself, but also what might be termed 'Greater Brighton' - once separate villages such as Preston, Patcham, Stanmer, Falmer, Hove and Portslade that have now been absorbed by the growth of Brighton. This second volume combines nostalgic old postcards - in both colour and sepia - together with a wide variety of recent photographs. Encompassing many subjects from mail coaches, trams and buses to street scenes and local events, with an emphasis on people enjoying themselves. Judy Middleton's Brighton Through Time: A Second Selection will take readers on a heart-warming photographic tour of Brighton over the last century, and shows both complete changes and startling similarities between past and present.
